Ghanaian dancehall artiste Shatta Wale wants Nigerian music banned from the shores of Ghana.
The self-acclaimed dancehall king has been in the news in recent times, following his ‘beef’ with Nigerian act Wizkid.
However, he is now set to stir more controversy after claiming Nigerian music should not be played in Ghana at all.
Shatta Wale has been signed as an ambassador for Storm Energy drink – a new product from indigenous beverage manufacturers, Kasapreko Company Limited.
The ‘ayoo’ hit maker was subsequently unveiled as brand ambassador for the newly produced drink at a short ceremony held at the Achimota Retail Centre in Accra.
A raucous crowd cheered him on as he delivered his speech, until he was visibly taken by his emotions.
Moderator of the unveiling ceremony Abeiku Santana mused that no Nigerian song should be played, and Shatta Wale quickly seconded insisting “not at all” should any Nigerian song be played.
He later added (in pigin) that “we ban am”.
